The Studio

Image is everything

In the creative industries of North America there is a huge disconnect between the industry professionals and the up and coming leaders of the photography and video industry. Whats more difficult is the financial cost to properly establish yourself in the field. CreateOf Studios is the solution to this problem. CreateOf Studios is a co-working space and incubator for professional people in the creative industry to network, run their business from a huge office and multi studio facility with all the amenities of the best private studios in Los Angeles and New York at less than 1/5th the cost of a small studio space in town! We chose Hamilton to be the hub for our creative space because Hamilton is home! In our time working with creative people around the world we always see a huge potential come out of our city and we want to be there to help the future creators develop!
